About the author:
Wisdom Legacy's mission is to prepare people for the journey of their lives and help them make the most of the trip.
We share this mission with behavioral health, mentoring, and support organizations across America. We partner with them to achieve our common purpose. We provide a free resource to capture and share the knowledge of their organizations and a platform where the people they serve can collaborate and record the most important stories of their lives.
Our goal is to harvest from these stories the wisdom that comes from wrestling with the challenges of life and learning from the experience. We want to compile lessons about what works from 1,000,000 people, and make that knowledge available to work for those who need it. We want to break down the barriers of silence and ignorance that keep people trapped and alone. We all need to share the hope and joy that come from knowing that we are not alone, that our challenges are not unique, that solutions exist, and that all of us have both the opportunity and capability to thrive.
Our prayer is that Wisdom Legacy engages people in dialogues around the important stuff of life. That it serves to energize our communications and relationships; and creates an on-going and evolving commitment to each other and our descendants - a legacy and promise to our kids that the world we leave to them will be better than the world we inherited.

Wisdom Legacy and the National Alliance on Mental Illness - San Diego have created a partnership to capture the lessons people have learned from dealing with mental illness. In this, our first book, 42 people trace their journey along the road of mental illness from the onset of the condition through to the time that their illness was overcome or came under management. The authors focus on what they have learned about mental illness and reflect on the life lessons they have learned from the road they have travelled.
All profits from the sale of this book go to benefit the National Alliance on Mental Illness - San Diego.
